The 2021 Power of Words Conference - Transformative Language Arts Network

With the goal of keeping our community safe during COVID, we moved this year's Power of Words Conference online, from October 28-31, 2021. Hosting a conference online creates some interesting challenges, while also providing wonderful opportunities to do things differently!

We are thrilled to feature Joy Harjo, the U.S. Poet Laureate, as one of our keynote presenters. She is joined as keynote by three brilliant young poet/artist/activists: Lyla June, Caits Meissner, and Javier Zamora.

This year's Power of Words Conference will feature keynote presentations, more than 30 workshops, panel discussions, performances, celebration, and more. Click to see the full schedule summary. The conference will be online, with the goal of offering an event that is safe, affordable and accessible to our community - especially during this most challenging time. The conference will bring together writers, storytellers, performers, musicians, community leaders, activists, educators, health professionals, and more.

Friday's Pre-Conference is open to all Conference attendees for an additional fee. The Pre-Conference will feature workshops and a panel discussion with the four keynotes.
